      Benji Farrow has been making waves on the competition scene since his second-place finish at the Rev Tour in 2009. Since then, it has been onward and upward for Farrow. He marked the 2011 season with an appointment to the World Championships team, where he placed 12th in halfpipe, the top U.S. finisher. Farrow rounded out the year with a top-10 finish at the Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain, and soon after he was called up to join the ranks of the U.S. Snowboard rookie squad. Farrow moved up to the U.S. Snowboarding Pro Team after an impressive podium at the 2012 Burton US Open and a sixth place finish at the European X Games in Tignes, France.

      Farrow finished his inaugural season on the US. Snowboarding Pro Team in 2013. While making finals at almost every event he entered, Farrow is making it clear that the world should get used to his name.

      BENJI SAYS
      This past season was a bit of a roller coaster for me. I would be lying if I said I was completely happy with the year. I did progress and add a major trick to my pipe run. I also made finals at the Olympic venue in Sochi, Russia, which will be a comforting factor should I make it back there for the Olympics. I am looking forward to time off this summer mixed with dry land and some on snow training. Next year is approaching fast and I am getting pretty excited. Hopefully things will go well and you will see me in Sochi. Until then, keep up with me on my website, twitter and instagram.

      FIRST TRACKS
      It was Farrow's seventh birthday. He had been skiing since he was four, but felt like he wanted a change on that particular day. So on his birthday he asked his dad if he could rent a board and give it a go. He said yes and Farrow never went back.

      OFF THE SNOW
      Farrow enjoys writing, photography, landscaping, hanging with his friends, causing mischief, skateboarding and exploring, not necessarily in that order.
